Postal worker dies from being mauled by 5 dogs


Nothing to see here.... Move along.
Owners should definitely be charged.

If you can't train, control and properly house an animal...

You shouldn't be allowed to own it.

Same with kids.

What kind?
SOG Flash II
It's black. Wife got it for me.

It fits in the right pocket and has the clip that, essentially, announces. "I have a knife"
I see these everywhere.

For all intents and purposes, it's what I use to replace gladhand washers.......

Prepared helping.

....but since I typically don't replace gladhand washers when I'm not at work it might come in handy for other things.

"never know" helping.

This is why I always carry a knife.

Prepared helping.
I very often see mail carriers open carrying pepper spray. I think it's issued to them. I've heard many times that doing so at FedEx will get you fired.

It speaks volumes as to how an employer regards it's front-line workers when they are forbidden to carry a non-lethal deterrent that could save their life from a horrible death.

And I carry a knife. The idea would be to make the dog bleed out before I do.

we have a hand held boat horn.
very effective for bears, coyotes, dogs in yard etc.
An article mentioned that a neighbor fired a gun in the air to scare the dogs. Didn't work.

When a pack of dogs are in a frenzy, I believe that nothing short of direct, overwhelming physical violence will stop them.
